About this site & Updates

Introduction

Hello! Many of you know me as King Magax from the Kingdom section of the mangafox forums. I mainly do summaries on the latest Kingdom chapters based on Chinese translations as well as research and translate historical information on the Era of the Warring states that Kingdom is based on.

If you are a fan of the Kingdom manga like me, which is most probably why you are here, feel free to explore this site and learn more! Do note that you might encounter historical spoilers for Kingdom around this site.

Here are some pages on this site I would recommend:

Updates:

14 Nov 17:
– Someone who understands Korean has summarized Ch538 in a reddit post. Copy pasted it here in my site for more people to see and credited him. If the original poster wants it removed, feel free to contact me. Interesting to see that the old 3GH, Rinshoujou, was mentioned in this chapter and we get to see his helmet? lol.

Ch538 Spoilers is out! Too little info for any form of summary so I will just put it here

Ch537 Korean chapter is out! At least now we can confirm Ouhon did not teleport out of danger.
– Added a chat function at the sidebar. Feel free to use it and let me know if you have any feedback.
– Hid older comments so it doesn’t clog up the comments section but can’t seem to bring the comment box above the comments…

6 Nov 17:
Ch537 Summary out. Thanks to the late chapter last week we didn’t feel the effects of the break

2 Nov 17:
– Addressed and added some minor stuff about Seikyo’s rebellion in Seikyo’s Kingdom-pedia post after a reddit discussion.

31 Oct 17:
-Taking a couple of days off updating this site since the next part of the Guidebook is the interview section which I have no idea how to translate accurately and there is no Kingdom this coming week anyway…

28 Oct 17:
Summary of Ch536 finally out! Kingdom is on a break next week!

26 Oct 17:
– Looks like the Chinese version of Ch536 will only be out during the weekends. The English version should be out sooner than that.

-Finished up all the character pages for Kingdom Guidebook 2, with Yan, Han and Qi characters as well as the other minor characters. There are also some extra information on history books of that era at the end of the chapter, do scroll down to the bottom of the Kingdom Guidebook 2 page for it.

    • I do vaguely remember a Qi general defecting to Zhao later. A couple of Qi generals were also mentioned when the coalition army turned around to attack Qi. However, historically, there were no wars involving Qi at this period so I think the chances of seeing a Qi general in combat is low.

      • Damn I’m hoping to see some in action and Qi itself in a battle how would you feel about mr. Hara Making up a battle like the one with the fire dragons instead this one will be with Qi and another state attacking them and qin having to pray for their victory this would give him alot of creative freedom since it would be a made up battle I wouldn’t mind him going away from shin and qin for a couple chapters to see a battle between Qi and another state what do you think.?

      • I am pretty sure Qin will not attack Qi before the final war after the meeting between the 2 kings. For the other states, I am pretty sure after the coalition war, most of them would have their eyes on Qin instead of wasting resources to attack Qi. If any state were to somehow attack Qi for a fictional war, it would be Yan as they are quite unpredictable from their surprise attack to Zhao in the latest arc with no provocation. All in all, my opinion is that the chances that we see Qi in a war is pretty low but not totally impossible.

  1. Hasn’t anyone questioned the inaccuracies of sima qian historical facts. Its well known the Chinese historians overwritten past accomplishments or paint them in a negative light. I find it very troubling when you say Li Xin was an amateur general and overconfident during the war with Chu but never questioned why he was put in charge of the army in the first place if he wasn’t so accomplished.

    • While there are a few pre-Qin era historical records(such as Zuo Zhuan and Zhan Guo Ce), Shiji is the only surviving history records that has the most details of the pre-Qin era and is the only one recording the history of the later parts of the era of the warring states thanks to Qin Shi Huang burning books during his reign. There really isn’t much to cross reference for its accuracy.
      For Li Xin, he was appointed as general to lead the Qin army to invade Chu based on his accomplishment in Yan where he captured the Yan crown prince and conquered half of its territory for Qin. This can be found in different chapters of Shiji as well. His loss was magnified by the fact that Sima Qian spent an entire paragraph to write about the Chu invasion in Wang Jian’s biography as compared to one-liners in other chapters mentioning Li Xin’s victories in other wars. I did mention them all in Li Xin’s post and the article here did some justice for him as well.

  2. Hey King, there’s something I want to ask you. One thing I came across somewhere is that apparently Chou Haku, that Zhao General who’s in charge of the eastern border that Riboku sent to take two cities
    belonging to Yan when Ordo was invading, is Zhao Cong. Is that information something you are able to verify?
